gof tv, i'm here to discuss proposition e the city requires businesses it pay a flat 1.5 percent tax on payroll cost for work performed in the city. small businesses with less than 250,000 dollars in payroll costs are exempt from the tax. proposition e would create a new city business tax based on gross receipts rather than payroll costs. under the new system, the tax on payroll cost would be eliminated or reduced. businesses with gross receipts of less than 1 million dollars annually will be exempt from the gross receipts tax. the gross receipts tax rate would vary depending on the type of business and its annual gross receipts from its activity in the city. certain businesses that have their headquarters or administrative offices in san francisco that operate primarily in other locations would pay the gross receipts tax based on payroll costs. proposition e would require the city to phase in the gross receipts tax and phase out the tax on payroll costs over a 5 year period beginning in 2014. if the gross receipts tax revenue exceeds the revenue the city would have received unde
and to reduce regulation and keep taxes low, so that businesses can expand and people can get jobs and they can feed their families and pay their mortgage and send their kids to school. i think that the choice we have to make on november 6 is very clear. you can choose someone who took a $200 million surplus, increases spending by 50% and let us with the highest tax burden in the country, or you can choose me. i would like to go to washington and lead the fight to reduce spending and reduce regulation and do things to grow this economy, and i would appreciate your vote. >> moderator: steve woods? woods: i'm a businessman and chairman of my local town council. this campaign and other campaigns bother me. cynthia, i am tired of your constant criticism of old wealthy white men. i think it is undignified for a u.s. senate candidate. charlie, i'm tired of your gross distortion of truth in regard to angus king come and i'm tired of your tv commercials ruining all my favorite shows on abc. i get it. 1.3 million. we both think that angus is responsible for terrible things. that and everything else. but

of the rentals are illegal and the hotel tax is not collected. should the city legalize some or all of the arrangements and collect a hotel tax and we will begin with you -- i will be glad to repeat the question. >> i honestly don't know how you would enforce a law like that. of course everyone should pay their fair share but i don't know how you could enforce that. i believe we should standardize the inlaw units, maybe sure they're up to code and regulate any new units but as far as taxation i cannot see how you could actually enforce that and collect the taxes on it. >> thank you sir. mr. yee. >> cheryl i just want to make sure -- >> i can repeat it. there is internet base market for short base rentals and they sublease units to visitors and tourists and many are illegal and the city's hotel tax is not collected. should the city legalize these arrangements and collect the hotel tax? >> i traveled to different countries and i go to the internet and they have hotels and these rentals advertise and i have used these apartments as rentals for either a few days or one week and it's
who doesn't support a lot of new taxes. i have served on the sunshine task force and we had a lot of members of public come in front of us, looking for reasons why all of these projects were overbudget and i think there is a lot of waste there government. we just talked about the hetch hetchy matter and building was supposed to be $140 million, but it was actually $65 million over budget. the department of public works doesn't even have all of its receipts. the bond oversight committee is supposed to be have access to those receipts. they can't get them. so we ce[6ud money is not accounted for. we found waste in the arts commission, which the controllers office confirmed and the civil grand jury confirm and we also found waste in various other departments. and this board of supervisors needs people on it who will actually ask those questions. thank you. we have a couple other candidates who wanted to jump in here. mr. davis and miss selby. >> after $1.5 billion in public service sector cuts in san francisco since 2008, since our budget crisis, we can't balance our budget going
the opportunity it share the thoughts of your position. >> so proposition a is a temporary 8-year, $79 parcel tax on properties in san francisco. and that money would go directly to supporting city college of san francisco. city college is the largest work force training center in san francisco. we train students. we also help students learn english as a second language and then of course one of our primary missions is to help students, particularly low income and underserved students, move on to 4 year institutions. we serve nearly 100,000 students in san francisco and are a tremendous resource, we think, for san francisco. the last couple years the state budget cuts we faced, $53 million in the last 3 years alone, have really made it a challenge for us to keep our doors open for san francisco students and this proposition a would make a tremendous difference in addressing our fiscal problems right now. >> understood. thank you. starchild, can you present some of the thoughts around the opposition? >> sure. we all believe in people getting an education and having those opportunities be aff
and that is by asking the wealthiest people and the largest corporations to start paying their fair share of taxes. i was talking about it gets us to solve that problem over a period of ten years. i thought ten years was too long basically. that was not an endorsement of every single item in the budget but the direction is going in, and whether or not i would support cutting if i supported that the budget i don't know. i have to look at the budget and see what cuts are necessary, but the most important point to remember is this. half of the budget is reform of the tax code to get the economy flat in the tax rates, lower the rates or on the base deutsch a trillion dollars of credits and the major corporations might take advantage to get the economy going and get revenues back up, get people back to work and you have less need for these programs and if it was to save the country to do it in a responsible way. >> i will get to it in a moment i'm not putting your words in your mouth. i want to understand in the short term over the next year or two would you cut the liheap funding of? diamondstone: if i w
. a company that does not pay $45 million in taxes to the state of montana. they are manipulating not only their workers but the congressman on this decision. >> time to go to our panel. our first question goes to senator tester. >> thank you. an overwhelming concern is the negative ads, so are the negative ads toward you buy your opponents greeted with one -- net so of the negative ads toward you buy your opponents, which one bothers you most? >> we have unlimited amounts of corporate secret money in campaigns, and i might add the decision has endorse my opponent and give him $10,000. i do not want an endorsement because i believe in transparency of government. he tells folks, now number one, they have been driving this over and over again 95% with obama. it is not true. i come home every weekend to get the ideas of montana and take it back to washington, d.c., and not just talk about it but actually get things done. >> they are trying -- he is trying to mislead montana's. it is 95% of the time against the best wishes of the stimulus and the epa, and he has a chance to side with small bus
the state of california and in san francisco for decades. commercial property owners have been on a tax holiday through the reagan and bush era and have received benefits it is time for us to properly tax commercial property owners here in san francisco so that we can make-up for the lack of funding that we receive from the state. i plan to do that by instituting a commercial rent tax in san francisco. san francisco needs to be a culturally sustainable city and environmentally sustainable, restoring uni, uni has had a structural budget deficit. we need supervisors who are going to have the political will to find the resources to fully fund our mta system. i am looking at a number of options from congestion pricing to a downtown transit tax assessment district to even a local gas tax or a local vehicle license fee so that we can fully fund our uni system and stop fixing the buses with duct tape and have a first-class transit system in san francisco. another way that we can be a leader is to encourage people to get out of the cars and on to bike by developing a 100 percent renewable infra
have less than two months to steer clear of the fiscacliff-- the combination of tax hikes and government spending cuts scheduled to take affect in january. our market monitor this week says plan now for higher taxes soon, and higher interest rates eventually. duncan richardson is chief investment officer at eaton vance management. he joins us from that firm in boston. duncan, i take it you're a pessimist in regards to avoiding the fiscal cliff that we're going to go over? >> not really a pessimist. i think the fiscal cliff is going to be more of a fiscal slope, but there will be a tax element to it. i think because we're starting at such a low level of tax rates, we're very likely to have higher taxes either immediately with the expiration of the payroll tax and potentially on capital gains and dividends in 2013 and beyond. >> tom: how should invests approach that, invest on what tax rates may be next year? >> not really. but there are great costs to be avoided by lessening the tax drag on your investment. positioning your portfolio and making sure you're in sthooks can ou
president obama because they're fearful of higher taxes. they're fearful of all those kinds of things. president obama makes the argument that demand, more people working, will create demand and that will create more hiring. so this thing going to be relevant for about ten minutes and after that it's going to devolve into spin for the rest of the weekend. >> which means it will be relevant in a completely different way all the way until sometime tuesday night for sure. ali velshi also going to stick around with us all morning. we've been talking, of course, about jobs, jobs, jobs. as ali said the race there in ohio, virtual dead heat. across the nation, much of the nation as well, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, and a national public radio poll 57% of those surveyed said economic issues are the most likely to affect their vote. cnn's brienne into keilar is
, when harry reid stands up and says, hey, i heard a rumor that mitt romney didn't pay his taxes, and mitch mcconnell stands up and says i'm going to make you a one-term president, they're acting like kindergarteners. we need new leadership that will say we are now working for the american people. forget politics, forget party. it is time for us to move forward, and when i'm back in washington, i promise you i'll work with either president. >> moderator: senator hatch, a rebuttal. hatch: well, i have to say i've had democrats come up to me during that very difficult preconvention time and say you've got to win. you're one of the few guys that can bring us together. it wasn't just with senator kennedy, it was with dozen of others. henry waxman is the most liberal guy in the house of representatives, but he's brilliant. we did the hatch-waxman act that was done right in my office. by anybody's measure, it's one of the best consumer bills in history. i can do it. >> moderator: rebuttal, mr. howell. howell: well, you know, i appreciate our senator talking about the past. he's gone so

go away. we would be able to tax it. if you look at the states that have medical marijuana in this country it is now understood that the marijuana legalization is helping lift those committees out of their own recessions. >> is it time to end the prohibition? >> yeah, i think that should be respected. i have had the occasion to hear from the sponsor of that bill who has now passed away. but i think everyone is familiar with people who are surfing from terrible diseases and pain and the legislature here has proved that with the obvious safeguards. i think there has got to be a way to accommodate the medicinal use of marijuana. >> would you remove marijuana from schedule one? >> i don't know if that's the only way to do it but if it is then yes. >> the governor has asked the federal government to do. mr. doherty how do you feel about continuing the prohibition of marijuana? >> you're talking about the drug wars and the violence associated with drug wars. and superintendent of the police before i retired we took down the largest seizure of cocaine. >> you made a career out of
. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and the slowest job growth in half a century. and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up for the last four years. so here is the thing. we have tested both theories. we have tested both visions. one worked really well. one worked really badly. romney has been using all of his formidable talents as a salesman to dress up the very same policies that toppled the country and that we have been cleaning up after, he is offering them up as change. he is saying he is the candidate of change. don't boo, vote. vote. let me tell you, colorado, we know what change looks like. we know what is going to help the middle class. we know what is going to grow jobs and reduce the deficit. governor romney is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not change. leaving millions without health insuran
small business owners have never heard of. no one offered me a police station, a tax break or a express bus, quite the opposite. our business was evicted through the market as a result of doubling and tripling rents. >> small business is the economic engine of san francisco and i will do all that i can to support it and to make it thrive. i also am a mother, raising two boys on hate street and sending them to public school on public transit. i know we have good schools, but i also know the fear of trying to figure out education, health insurance, transportation, and affordable housing, with kids this is a struggle. we face it in the familis in san francisco. i have a concrete investment in the quality of life in san francisco from reliable muni to save schools and streets. i am truly walking the walk in this race, my values come from my life experience, they are not plat taouds that i have chose ento get votes. i am in politics because i see a need for a neighborhood voice. residents and merchants we have great ideas that should be supported by the supervisor. i'm running a grass roots

that's different from the tax reform that's needed for the nation, when we look at the border we need comprehensive immigration reform. as a troubled border and meet with the agricultural folks and ranchers, we have a workforce problem because the immigration system is broken, the visa system is broken, we can't get workers to go back and forth, it takes hours to go back and forth. these create an impediment to commerce, so we have to be able to provide a workforce that can move back and forth very easily. and right now, we are not able to do that because of all of the impediments that aren't there not by having an effective comprehensive immigration policy. so that becomes an economic issue as well. >> some of the issues have to do with the issue that was raised here with regard to being near the border. the work that comes on and being especially susceptible to the national trends when it comes to unemployment in the economy. we need to do some things desperately here like a commuter plane that will make it easier for labor to come across from the daytime and go back at night. that'

and tax collector and obtain a bond that means the city has the exclusive beneficiary. that's something that we need to happen to protect the city. the bonding requirement is there for that very purpose to safeguard the city in case an operator fails to remit the taxes and collects on behalf of the city. the bonding requirements currently range from 20,000 to $800,000 depending on the annual gross receipts from the parking station. since these bonding rates were passed, the financial crisis has made it quite difficult for certain operators to get a large line of credit without actually owning significant assets. this has disadvantaged in particular many small parking operators who do not have sufficient capital to obtain the necessary bond. it has also impacted larger operators who have operated in good faith and have a proven record of responsible third-party tax collection. so, in order to continue to protect the city -- so, we essentially have to strike the right balance between requiring the bond, but also recognizing the challenges that some of these operators face. and in order to
